  • From The Detroit News A rather touching story about Jan-Willem Vester -- a long time Neil Young fan -- who passed away recently that lived the life of chrome dreams. (Thanks ny.org!)

  • Time Fades Away by Neil Young on Blurt Online by FRED MILLS:
    "Neil Young's 1973 live opus Time Fades Away has attained semi-mythic status among Young aficionados for a number of reasons, not all of them strictly musical. For one thing, Young himself has called it the worst record he ever made, telling a British journalist in 1999 that 'it makes me so nervous. The whole tour was a nervous experience. It wasn't really a lot of fun. I kind of got into documenting that vibe. It's not something I want to listen to a lot and when I listen to it I'm not that impressed.'

    With an anti-endorsement like that, who could blame fans for being drawn to the album like cellphone camera-wielding travelers to a freeway wreck?"

  • From Modular People: "Wolfmother have been included on the War Child: 10 compilation, covering Neil Young's After The Gold Rush classic, 'Don't Let It Bring You Down'. Joining the track list ranks with Wolfmother are big guns such as Radiohead, New Order and Beck just to name a few."

  • From Purple Words on a Grey Background a video interview with Jim Jarmusch on Neil Young and Year of the Horse (@ 4:30).

  • From Entertainment Weekly, Norah Jones reveals her current listening: "But I’m, like, obsessed with Neil Young. I’m listening to Zuma and Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere a lot. He seems like someone that just does whatever the hell he wants. And God love him for that!"

  • From Leigh: "On the Greendale feature film, if you go to 'more' and go onto the 'family tree' and click on 'edith' it says that she made a record and then on the bottom of the third page, it says play record. you hear 'don't fence me in' by edith. presumably this is actually Pegi with possibly Neil on guitar.

    any one else discovered this?"

  • From Consequence of Sound on Kathleen Edwards and Neil Young:
    "In one way, I like to think of Kathleen Edwards as the female Neil Young. OK, Edwards is prettier, younger, slimmer, and to my knowledge has only ever recorded one guitar solo of her own, while her male compatriot is of course famed for his massively extended live ones. But they share much commonality of spirit. It is her view of the human condition, and how she expresses it lyrically and in music, that puts Kathleen Edwards right up there."

  • NNC: From Colin Horgan - Yesterday\'s Weirdness – The ’00s: How ‘Idioteque’ explains a decade - True/Slant: "The blogosphere and social media furthered our alternate selves, projecting a persona that exists in a meta-reality, both everywhere and nowhere simultaneously."

    Random comment from random blog: Neil's Journal to be published?

    I was looking at Borders.com and came across something called The Neil Young Journal 1942-1972 due out June 1st 2010 from Simon and Schuster. Is Neil publishing a book? THis is the first I heard of it. Can anyone confirm this? How exciting! Neil's Journals?
    Take a look tell me what you think:
    Go to
    http://www.borders.com and type in Neil Young Journals in search function

    this is clearly the Archives Book....

    es, saw that too on Amazon. Out on June 1st. Looks like it is the Archives book that goes commercial: same content, same timeline, same number of pages...

    That's cool news Shittyhorse!

    Product Details
    Simon & Schuster, June 2010
    Trade Paperback, 240 pages
    ISBN-10: 1439184364
    ISBN-13: 978143918436

    Neil Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in 1995 and also as a member of Buffalo Springfield in 1997. The co-founder of Farm Aid, Young is an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and is currently working on a documentary about electric car technology.

    Hmmm, hope this isn't the Archives book....

    Another random comment from random blog:
    Pegi Young was expected to release ‘Foul Deeds’, her second album this year, but something went astray. A note at her website states, “due to circumstances beyond my control, my CD and live shows have been postponed until further notice”.
    She wil play SXSW next year.

    I agree, judging by what little we know, it is the archives book, but why wait to release it until June when you can buy the book, alone, today at NeilYoung.com
    Just seems strange, but with Neil, what else is new....

    Whats up with Toast?

    So here's another very random Comment:
    Any Howard Stern fans out there? If you listen to him you know he's a huge Neil Young fan. Howard mentions Neil at least twice a week. He mentioned the Archives when they came out (he bought a copy for his daughter) and always sings Neil's praises.
    Today as a bumper he played My, My Hey, Hey, after commercials and he mentioned that it really bothers him that Neil has never done his show, after all these years of talking Neil up, etc. He said Neil needs to "just get in there", talk for a few minutes and play a tune.
    SO who thinks Neil Young would ever do the Howard Stern show? I totally think he should. It would be friggin awesome... but would he?
    Love Howard Stern or hate him, he's a great interviewer and asks questions no one else would.
    Many of Neil's peers have done the show- Paul McCartney (twice), Stephen Stills, Elton John, Ringo, Bowie, Willie Nelson, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder to name a few. I think Neil and Pegi should go on to promote Pegi's new album and maybe Lincvolt and the Archives. Millions listen to Stern on Sirius every morning and still the show still proves to be a great promotion vehicle.
    I'm just a fan of both and think it would be the greatest thing.

    Neil do the Stern show!!
